Cylinder manufacturer Luxfer was provided with the perfect opportunity to showcase its new cylinder product range and manufacturing facilities as it played host to the 114eme Congres national des sapeurs-pompiers de France exhibition in Clermont-Ferrand, home of the company’s newly extended European manufacturing base.

The exhibition provided Luxfer with a unique opportunity to open its doors to SCBA personnel and firefighters from across France and extend an invitation to factory tours around its automated production facilities, including Q&A sessions and presentations led by SCBA technical experts.

The annual exhibition, which concluded with a gala casino dinner, also proved to be the ideal European showcase for the company’s new Performance Securite campaign featuring the next-generation Superlite 6.9 litre full wrap cylinders.

France Meder, Luxfer’s SCBA marketing manager, said, “Sapeur Pompier was an extremely important show for Luxfer and, as local manufacturers based in Gerzat, we were also especially delighted with the industry’s continued loyalty to Luxfer’s 6 litre hoop wrap range, particularly amongst SCBA maintenance officers who value the operational cost savings associated with the cylinder’s unlimited life. As pioneers in advanced SCBA technology, Luxfer’s Performance Securite campaign highlighted the benefits of the company’s reputation for unsurpassed safety levels including built-in corrosion protection.”

As pioneers in the manufacture of composite cylinders, Luxfer’s Superlite 6.9 litre full wrap cylinders are capable of combining high performance features such as unlimited life and an extended gas delivery.
